Rochioli Estate Grown Russian River Valley Chardonnay 2016

$59.99

Rare Chardonnay release from Russian River Valley cult producer Rochioli. 94 Points "Editor's Choice" Wine Enthusiast:  "Rich and creamy, this is a standout wine from the great vineyard owner and producer. It shines in a wealth of golden honey and salty oak, a well-balanced sensibility streaked through in a memorable, ying-yang of lushness and crisp Gravenstein apple." 92 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): “Tom Rochioli's 2016 Chardonnay Estate is a classy, understated appellation-level wine from various blocks on the estate. Racy and beautifully textured, the 2015 is super-finessed from start to finish. Lemon confit, apricot, mint and chamomile add shades of nuance, but it is the wine's exceptional balance that stands out most. This is a gorgeous Chardonnay from Tom Rochioli." This wine is a fine example of the unique characteristics from the Rochioli property and the Russian River Valley. Aromas of ripe apple, tropical fruit, hazelnut and a touch of spice combine with the rich apple flavors and crisp acidity. A blend from different vineyard sites: 65% Mid 40, 35% River Block

The best wine I had during was three tastings. Rich yellow apple and green pear, nice medium acid along with brûlée caramel and perfectly balanced butter. I cannot to see how this evolves.

Love their white wines. No oak, no butter just crisp clean made more like a white burgundy
